It is a funny thing when the passage for a given weekend and the Hallmark holiday on that weekend don’t quite line up. It is Father's Day, of course, on Sunday, and our passage for this week is Luke 10:38-42…the story of Mary and Martha. So, men, are you a Mary or a Martha?

Actually the question is legit. These two women proved to be examples of two very different approaches to life in Christ. Both loved Jesus, there’s no doubt about that. But one showed her devotion and the other was terribly distracted by lesser things. I don’t think it is a stretch to say that dads, moms, kids, all of us are so distracted that we find it hard to do what Mary did: just sit at the feet of Jesus and listen to him speak.

A Christ-follower must be given to devotion not distraction.

When I’m DISTRACTED... When I’m DEVOTED...
I stop at welcoming Jesus in I stop to sit at Jesus’ feet
I’m occupied with many things I choose the one good thing I’m anxious and troubled I’m attentive to God’s Word
I think I need to fix others I know I need to focus on Jesus I’m rebuked by Jesus I’m commended by Jesus
